    Fantastic pictures! Thank you so much. It is the crown that I was interested in, specifically how the clamping force was achieved, and your top view of the crown was a perfect shot to illustrate that to me. I totally appreciate it!

    No problem at all. Here's another close up of a crown for good measure.

    Be mindful of Bontrger's crown patent !

    Bontrager still has a patent on the crown design FYI , if you remember they licensed the design to TANGE and then later RockShox ( who may have later bought the patent )
    This is the main reason Bontrager was able to get the specific crown built for their bikes.

    Are we going to see a Endless for sometime soon ??

    Make a light disc only 29er fork in that fashion and I'll be all over it.

    I remember a mtbr member was testing the fork. I am pretty sure it was lightbike59, but might be wrong. I know he goes by "Madcow" on the weightweenies site. He said that they will be available in the next few months with both reasonable weight and cost.

    Maybe

    that's why they changed the rigid fork on the Fisher RIG to a RS reba "in the meantime".

    I want to share a photo too

    I don't think this fork had any offset.

    Hey Marshall!
    What's up your sleeve, eh?
    Do you have some interesting plans for an Endless or Industry 9 rigid fork?
    I may start drooling already...

    How do those ride?

    Would you ride a Bontrager fork over a nice custom, say Walt, or Steelman? If you could choose any rigid fork, based purely on ride quality, ot neccessarily vintage correct, what would it be?
